    There's a shock.

    There are differences even in his own hand on official documents written in ink. But you want an exact perfect copy with an etching tool?

    The M on the watch has the same ornate starting loop on ALL examples except the cricket club.

    The A is a diffuclt match but the docuemnts are joined up writing which is practically impossible to do cleanly with the tool used - it is a basic A.

    The long loop drop of the Y is on ALL examples.

    The R and I is too obscured by the watch detail to get a clear read. The C is much like the A in respect it's purpose is to be clear.

    The kick in the lower part of the K is on all three examples and the watch. The loop in the upper K is on the watch, the will and mariage certificate.

    This is more for those willing to take off their tinted glasses and look properly.

    Izzy Iconoclast is just about to make me a lovely cup of tea and she has just said (entirely unprompted) that the 'K' in the watch looks exactly like the 'K' in Maybrick's signature, and she has no skin whatsoever in this game, so what do you say to that little 'corker'?

    Agreed.

    If you read my brilliant Society's Pillar, you'd see that I acknowledge the handwriting as a concern.

    Do you physically write "The Baron" everytime you sign off a post?

    Just as Florence's initials on Kelly's wall have made it onto every published version of the infamous photograph since 1888 but the diary detractors either can't see them or simply say they're not there, I knew that the response from you (or one like you) would be along the lines of "It's not a match"!

    Oh you indulge me, Sir!

    I was responding to a report. There’s been a few red flags about this thread sent my way this past week so take it generally and not directed at any particular member or comment.

    Carry on

    Anyway, he's never questioned your OFOTCN similes before and - as I thoroughly enjoy the craic - perhaps he'll permit a little good-natured metaphor in the house from time to time?

    Or is that an attempt at distraction?

    Now, that really would be irony, would it not?
    As P&P said, what about the handwriting?

    Much less of a problem than the handwriting or breast placement.

    And no, I'm not a diary supporter. Just a supporter of good sense and provable facts.

    I see you named yourself after your cats - so did I!

    You adopt a fine standard, Sir or Madam. If it's a fraud, it's a fraud. If it's authentic, it's authentic. So let's demonstrate it one way or the other rather than make arguments out of sand.

    As a matter of interest, you seem to be a well-balanced individual: Do you feel that Florrie's initials are discernible on Kelly's wall? (Now, I said 'discernible' not 'there', note.)

    Cheers,

    Ike
